NDIA Ground Robotics Capabilities Conference & Exhibition "A New Horizon: Defining the Use of Robotic & Autonomous Systems and the Gained Benefits" April 7-8, 2015 Arlington, VA

The agenda is now available for the NDIA Ground Robotics Capabilities

Conference & Exhibition! Visit our website at www.ndia.org/meetings/5380 and

Ground robotic and autonomous systems, rapidly adopted during the
Afghanistan and Iraq wars, have enabled the U.S. and its allies to operate
more effectively, efficiently, and safely in a variety of mission profiles,
such as Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD), Combat Engineering, and
Reconnaissance. These proven capabilities have secured a path for ground
robotics' future alongside the Warfighter. As the Department of Defense
looks to formulate its Joint Concept for Remote, Robotic and Autonomous
Systems and implement Better Buying Power 3.0, greater focus is being placed
on interoperability and teaming of ground robots with other
robotic/autonomous systems, and with manned systems as well.

The purpose of the Ground Robotics Capabilities Conference & Exhibition is
to provide a forum for Industry and Government stakeholders to engage in an
honest dialogue exploring the potential effectiveness and efficiency gained
through the use of human-machine teaming across all Services of the U.S.
military. Don't miss your chance to register - visit

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
